Hong Kong - Taiwan relations in the CY Leung administration: End of Strategic Ambiguity?
The relations between Hong Kong and Taiwan have always been strategically ambiguous because of the sensitivity of cross-Strait relations. During the colonial age, through its special status, when cross-Strait relations were strained, the role of Hong Kong was considerably significant. However, 20 years since the handover, Hong Kong’s role has only been partially successful, and the relations between Hong Kong and Taiwan have been limited so far. This project aims at initially exploring the predicament of Hong Kong–Taiwan relations from the Hong Kong perspective during the Leung Chun Ying era.

An Explorative Study of the Political Economy of Laos and China Rise: Balancing or Bandwagoning?
The conventional scholars on international relations believe that Southeast Asian countries, in pursuit of survival and national development, left with no choice but bandwagoning in response to the rise of China. However, it is equally important to critically review these theories and explore comprehensive and alternative understanding of the reality -- is there really no other middle-ground strategies for the weak and less-developed nations to interact with a strong and rich neighbour? This research thus aims to go beyond the common view of prominent status of China in the region and shed light on the resilience and alternative strategies (e.g. hedging, accommodating, soft balancing…) employed by Laos, which is a case long ignored by researchers in the field of study.

Different forces of nationalism in greater China cities: Comparing the political re-presentation in history museums at Hong Kong, Macau and Taipei
Museum may help to reshape the image of the city and foster citizenship and national identity, for example National Museum of History in Taipei city has a clear social mission on national education. Colonial states used history museums to legitimize their rule by displaying their version of their subjects’ past, such political functions inherited by independent post-colonial states as they forge nation-states and national identities – What about the post-colonial cities without independence? What makes Hong Kong and Macau so interesting to be investigated and compared is that both cities were colonies of imperialism for centuries and handover to Chinese sovereignty in late 1990s under the political principle of “one-country-two systems”. While developments at the Hong Kong Museum since the handover bear witness to a crucial new role in attempts to promote a state-centered patriotism, Macau Museum displays the city as a dynamic, pluralistic meeting point of “East-meets-West”. Creating the sense of Chinese nationalism and “the end of national humiliation” over modern China mainly rely on the exhibits in Hong Kong Museum, but Macau Museum shoulders the diplomatic function of nurturing friendship with western Europe and Portuguese-language countries. In contrast, Taiwan is experiencing a different practice of the building of national identity and citizenship. “Nationalism” is an important issue for Taiwanese. They try to build up a conscious of nation-state, which is a more traditional form of nationalism. For the National Museum of History in Taipei, it works on emphasizing the role and uniqueness of Taiwan in Chinese history and culture. It claims as “an open field for interpreting the history of our nation (Taiwan).” As these museums unfold, they provide a clearer picture of the need and the opportunity to recreate and/or reinvent the past to define, celebrate, or serve the present.

City Imagineering of Hong Kong: Place Making and Struggle between Globalness and Local Identity
In Chief Executive Policy Address 2007, the Financial Secretary is assigned to formulate strategies to revitalize ‘Brand Hong Kong’ and step up publicity efforts highlighting HK as Asia’s world city. HK people’s ‘core values’ will be re-searched, re-engineered, and re-vitalized. In fact, HK has experienced immense challenges from globalization recently. She needs serious repositioning and creates a new city identity in order to survive against three serious challenges. First, the world economy is characterized by the increasingly intense competition among different city-regions, whereby cities such as Hong Kong have to struggle between their globalness and their local identity. Second, creating a global character necessitates a transformation and reconfiguration of the existing places so as to make them more attractive to foreign investment and visitors. Third, as a corollary of the above two currents, reinventing a global city through crafting a new city identity and place making inevitably alienates some local groups and invites some sort of disagreements/resistances. In order to alleviate the problems, effective governance requires a strategic plan, which includes proper visioning or imagineering that combined city making and place making so as to attain both global competitiveness and local approval. In this proposed qualitative research, we intend to examine the imagineering efforts of the Government in response to the above three challenges, including their understanding to the challenges, their strategic ways to tackle the challenges, and the outcome of their strategies.

Socio-Spatial Embeddings of Economic Actions: South Asian Ethnic Minorities in Hong Kong
As globalization intensifies, international migration becomes a salient phenomenon. Although the ethnic minority population in Hong Kong (HK) is relatively small, as an Asian world city, the foreign-born population has increased rapidly. Despite international and domestic complaints, the HK Government denied the existence of racial discrimination. Until the 2001 Census, the Government did not systematically collect information about ethnic minorities. It was during the 2008-2009 Budget Speech that the Government admitted for the first time the disadvantaged position of the ethnic minorities (EMs). According to the Financial Secretary, financial resources will be maneuvered to help them integrate into the community to resolve their problem of “lack of social networks.”
It is doubtful whether the limited efforts could help HK’s EMs. The EMs are quite diverse in terms of citizenship, culture, socioeconomic status, clustering of residence, education, and skills. Without the proper understanding of their ethnic economies and the various strategies that different ethnic groups deal with their socio-economic daily lives within the Chinese-dominated society, the Government may reinforce the existing institutional biases against them, failing to think beyond assimilationism.
There are some studies about the conditions of EMs in Hong Kong, but none of them directly examine HK’s ethnic economies. Many of them focus on racial discrimination, which are heavily inclined to victimize the EMs, hence denying them the ability and possibility to deal with socioeconomic problems by themselves. The proposed study aims to understand the economic actions of South Asian minorities in HK, through the theoretical perspective that emphasizes on their embeddings within social relationship and social institutions. Specifically, their economic actions is determined by the accumulation of human, financial, and social capitals. The accumulation processes are embedded within the ethnic economy, which is spatially and socially embedded in various local communities. Three structural factors, that is, government policy, societal reception, and co-ethnic community, together with two socio-spatial factors, that is, residential pattern and socio-demographic composition of the neighborhood, affect the forms of ethnic economy.
Qualitative research methods, that is, focus group interviews, field investigation and
semi-participant observation, co-ethnic media analysis, and in-depth case studies, will mainly be
employed to collect relevant data. The proposed study will figure out:
1. the forms and constructions of South Asian ethnic economy in HK communities;
2. how the three structural factors and two socio-spatial factors affect the forms and constructions of
these ethnic economies;
3. the economic actions of HK South Asians perform in these ethnic economies;
4. how the accumulation of human, financial and social capitals shape these economic actions.
These findings will not only inform the policymakers on the ways to formulate appropriate policies on
what the Chief Executive in his 2007 Policy Address stated as “promoting social harmony by helping
people to help themselves” and South Asians’ problem of “lack of social network” according to the
Financial Secretary, but also fill the theoretical and empirical gaps on a small-sized ethnic economy and
community with advanced Asian/Chinese societies.

Survey on School Students’ Needs and Utilizations on Internet Applications
Even though Hong Kong has achieved internet penetration rate of 70.9% in year end of 2008 and all schools are connected to the internet, the gap between the Information Communication Technology (ICT) “have” and “have- nots” is still large and it is widening in Hong Kong. For education, as the implementation of education reform came into effect, it is not difficult to understand that learning through internet applications becomes an important channel and even the basic need for school students. However, those low-income family school students were difficult to access internet for learning and completing digital school assignments because of the reason of poverty. This will concededly broaden the digital divide among school students.
Funded by Oxfam Hong Kong, this research mainly consists of two parts. For the quantitative part, self-administered and structured questionnaires will be distributed to the primary and secondary students; and for the qualitative part, individual interviews with school teachers who can share information related to usage of ICT in school teaching and learning and school facilities enabling students’ learning will be conducted.

Comparing the Political Representation of Museums in Hong Kong and Macau after Handover to China
Modern states have long used museums to foster citizenship and national identity. Colonial states used history museums to legitimize their rule by displaying their version of their subjects’ past, such political functions inherited by independent post-colonial states as they forge nation-states and national identities – what about the post-colonial cities with independence? What makes Hong Kong and Macau so interesting to be investigated and compared is that both cities were colonies of European imperialism for centuries and handover to Chinese sovereignty in late 1990s under the political principle of “One-country-two systems”. While developments at the Hong Kong Museum since the handover bear witness to a crucial new role in attempts to promote a state-centered patriotism, Macau Museum displays the city as a dynamic, pluralistic meeting point of “East-meets-West”.

Critical Review of Career Counseling in On-the-Job Training: Case Study of Ywets
Youth Work Experience and Training Scheme (Ywets) launched in 2002, until today, still the major effort of the Labor Department to bridge the school education and career path of youths, especially those who are less successful in schooling. It aims to “enhance the employability of young people, including work experience and job skills, and brighten their employment prospects, through the provision of on-the-job training.” The Scheme is divided into two major parts, i.e. induction course and on-the-job training (OJT) through work placement for the participants. Career counseling, provided by registered social workers, is one of the vital components of the work placement. However, more and more researches query counseling debriefing is not only largely ineffective but may also have long-term adverse effect on “weak”, especially in the clientele of young ones. The research aims at critically review the function and significance of career counseling which built-in the OJT of the Scheme, questions if career counseling generating very limited contribution to the enhancement of their employability, or even undermining the effectiveness the OJT by the work placement for the participants. OJT is emerging to be an important field of studies in education.

Strategies of Sustainable Livelihood against Racism and Social Exclusion: South & Southeast Asian Ethnic Minorities and Chinese New Immigrants in Post-colonial Hong Kong
The main objective of our proposed study is to examine the extent of social exclusion and discrimination of Hong Kong ethnic minorities and Chinese new immigrants. Through employing the Sustainable Livelihoods approach which was developed by the Department for International Development (DFID) of UK, we will explore the ways that Hong Kong ethnic minorities and Chinese new immigrants deal with their everyday life difficulties. Furthermore, by employing the theoretical perspectives of colonialism and sinicization, our study also attempts to examine and explain the socio-political mechanisms that lead to South & Southeast Asian ethnic minorities and Chinese new immigrants in Hong Kong being socially excluded and discriminated. Policies and measures are expected to be developed from these analyses in order to enhance the city’s multicultural citizenship for the well being of different ehthnicites.

Japanese Anime and Manga in Liberal Studies Education: An Exploratory Study of 'Why and Why not' in Japan versus Hong Kong
The high value of Japanese anime (cartoon) and manga (comic) in teaching and learning is clearly recognized in Japan, including subjects related to liberal studies. Through examining the ideas, images, symbols, languages, beliefs and rituals represented in anime and manga, the proposed project aims at explaining why and how the knowledge and learning of Japanese students in liberal studies could be constructed and enhanced effectively. Although cartoon and comic is one of the most popular entertainments of Hong Kong teenagers, and Japanese products occupied the largest share in the market, anime and manga is less adopted by local schools in teaching and learning of liberal studies. Compare and contrast to the experience in Japan, the second aim of the proposed project is to explain why the success in Japan not happens in today’s Hong Kong.
